Queen Elizabeth Told Family to “Leave” After Funeral! Mike Tindall is sharing new details about Prince Philip‘s funeral.
On Friday, April 30, the former rugby player spoke to Good Morning Britain about how the royal family is coping with the Duke of Edinburgh’s death, revealing that Queen Elizabeth II is keeping her head held high after saying goodbye to the love of her life.
“Even after the funeral it was sort of ‘you all need to leave,’ and so you didn’t even get to have that supportive side afterwards,” he explained.
Mike, who is married to the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall, added in a separate interview with BBC Breakfast, “That is what was allowed, that’s what the law and the rules state and so that’s what happened.”
He said that the Queen’s ability to maintain her composure as she sat alone during the funeral proved how “amazing” she is.
Though Prince Philip’s services didn’t include the traditional wake because of restrictions implemented during the coronavirus pandemic, he said to BBC Breakfast, “It was tough, but the funeral was done so well. I think he would have been happier about the way it happened.”
He previously described how the funeral was “eerie.”
“It’s been a difficult ten days,” Mike recently said on an episode of his The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast. “If I look back on the day, as eerie as it was with no crowds and social distancing, and the way everything was, I think it was the perfect day. [It was] how he would have liked it, if that makes sense whatsoever. No fuss, get on with it.”
The royal family has since resumed their duties, with the Queen already attending engagements despite being in a period of mourning. On Tuesday, April 13, the Queen held a retirement ceremony for former Lord Chamberlain, Earl William Peel, the most senior member of the royal household staff.
Kate Middleton Uses Code Words To Let Her Kids Know They’re Acting Up In Public, Apparently
Kate Middleton is a lot of things. She’s a duchess, a philanthropist, and, of course, a devoted mother.
Anyone who has ever raised (or, TBH, even babysat for any length of time) kids the ages of the Cambridge kids—Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 3—knows that achieving the kind of near-perfect behavior they display in public is no easy feat of parenting.
This is just a normal fact of life: Kids will be kids, and that means not acting like perfect, miniature-size adults every second of every day. Add to that the very public nature of being a member of the royal family, though, and Kate’s parenting prowess is nothing short of incredible.
So how does the Duchess of Cambridge do it? She has a secret language of sorts for communicating to George, Charlotte, and Louis that they need to check their behavior.
According to a report from The Sun, Kate’s code-word phrase for “calm down” is pretty simple: “Let’s take a break.”
When Kate announces it’s time for a break, George and Charlotte know that it’s time to take things down a notch, and if they aren’t out in public at the moment (because this code is used behind closed doors too), they take a few minutes to engage in a quiet solo activity, like reading a book or doing a puzzle, to regroup.
